On the June 22 episode of the Lykken on Lending Internet radio show, we discussed some interesting statistics about what's going on in the housing market. It seems that inventory turnover is doing fairly well. The pace of turnover is up two to three percent. There has also been a spike in first-time homebuyers. For a few years now, the decline in inventories has been an issue for the industry.

As leaders in the mortgage industry, we can sometimes put the cart ahead of the horse. We want our people to respect us and follow our lead, so we take the reigns and start barking out orders. We try to motivate people by setting goals and pushing to reach those goals. Nothing wrong with that, of course. It's just that, in doing so, we get a little ahead of ourselves.

After more than six years of struggle for justice for older Americans whose spouses borrowed money through HECM reverse mortgages, we have victory!

Leadership can be messy. The countless changes in the mortgage industry over the past few years have left many people who work in the industry stressed out and restless in their work. It's hard to perform well when you're worried about the stability of the very industry in which you work. Working in the mortgage industry, people increasingly face the conflicting pressures to bee compliant with the ever-changing regulations and to produce the results necessary to sustain their organizations.
